The Brazilian's form for Tottenham Hotspur has earned him a place in the national team for friendlies against Argentina and Saudi Arabia.
Lucas Moura will join up with the Brazilian national team this month for friendlies against Argentina and Saudi Arabia.
It is the first time Lucas will be a part of the national set-up since the manager, Tite, took over in August 2016.
His lack of football for Paris Saint-Germain is what appears to have deterred Tite, as he had achieved 34 caps before then, both at PSG and Sao Paulo.
Having joined Tottenham Hotspur in January, Lucas has slowly established himself as a key figure in the team, most notably bagging a brace as Spurs won 3-0 against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The importance of his run in the team has not gone unnoticed with him, either, and he took to Instagram to both share his joy at his call-up and thank Spurs for giving him the opportunity.
"GLORY TO GOD!" he wrote. "Impossible to explain the joy of being able to wear the shirt of my country again. Let's go !!!!
"Thanks @spursofficial for bringing me back this thrill. #Brazil"
It is further proof that Tottenham's 'gamble' was a well executed one.
It was no secret that Mauricio Pochettino needed more quality in his squad, but taking a chance on a player who simply would not be up to his best for a few months was risky.
His impact over the second half of last season was small but both Lucas and Spurs are reaping the rewards for their patience now.
Tottenham is increasingly looking like one of the best clubs for players to improve themselves - and that can only be a fantastic thing for everyone involved.
